Laura Kenny's Biography
Dame Laura Kenny is one of the most recognised sportswomen on the planet and Britain’s greatest ever female Olympian. Adored by her fans as much for her personality as for her domination in the velodrome.
In winning her fifth Olympic gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Laura became the first British woman to win gold at three consecutive Olympic Games.
She is a long-standing Adidas athlete and has published a book “The Inside Track” with her husband Sir Jason Kenny, Britain’s most decorated Olympian in history.
She has been awarded Harper’s Bazaar ‘Sporting Icons’ award alongside Dame Sarah Storey; and her and teammate Katie Archibald became ‘Sky Sports Team of the Year’ for their Madison gold medal in Tokyo at The Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year.
In 2021 Laura made her punditry debut on Eurosport at the inaugural UCI Track Champions League, in which she will be racing in 2022.
Laura and Jason were named in the 2021 New Year Honours List and received their titles together, in May 2022, at Windsor Castle. Titles befitting their achievements and ones they were both truly honoured to receive.
